Carers Week 2020

Hello and welcome to our new website! What better way to launch it than with a rundown of our activities for Carers Week 2020, which this year took place between 8th-14th June.  

As you know, Carers Week is a really important time in our calendar – not only to raise awareness of the plight of Carers, but also celebrate the fantastic achievements we see on a day to day basis. 

Sadly, the current pandemic had an impact on our planned events but there was no way that we were going to let the week go unacknowledged. 

Along with a virtual coffee morning and pizza party for our young carers we also took to the streets to surprise the winners of our Carers Awards 2020.  

We had lots of wonderful nominations and were blown away by the stories we heard, but as you know, we can only have one winner in each category and here they are…
